Here Are Some Extremely Underrated Movies You Should Watch On Your Next Movie Night

Most of us simply prefer watching what’s popular on the big screen. Whether it’s the new Avengers movie or something from the Godzilla universe, we’re bound to jump into the bandwagon and watch it. However, the world of movies is far more diverse than any of us realize except for the most avid cinephiles. This means that no matter how good a movie is, there’s a chance that it won’t get the recognition it deserves because, well, let’s face it — we only have time and money for so many movies a year. Some of them slip by without anyone giving them the credit that they deserve, and we’re here to make sure that such movies get mentioned because they deserve to be watched. So, without further ado, let’s get straight into the movies that deserved far more attention than they got when they were released because a lot of effort and talent was spent to bring them into existence.

Sicario (2015)

This movie is definitely not for everyone, but if you’re a lover of hardcore gun violence on the big screen, then you’re definitely going to enjoy this masterpiece. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, Sicario was definitely a movie that had a lot of thought put into it, and Denis certainly had a vision for this movie. Sicario made a measly $84.9 million in the box office which isn’t half bad, considering the fact that the budget for its production was around $30 million. However, the class with which this movie has been made is beyond compare and convincingly brings us into the mind of a young FBI agent who slowly learns what a drug war is truly like. Sicario doesn’t leave anything to the imagination and immerses us deep into the reality of how horrid conditions can get when it comes to the drug cartel.

Shutter Island (2010)

Yet another movie that deserved so much more than it got in the box office, Shutter Island is one that you’ll never forget once you’ve watched it, and that’s all thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio’s legendary acting skills. That man has a way with how he controls every second while he’s in his character’s shoes and leads us into the world of amnesia in one of the most gripping and captivating story lines that we’ve ever witnessed. While it’s become famous over the years due to positive word-of-mouth reviews, it should have earned far, far more due to how outstanding it really is. The viewer is left in shock as they follow the story of US Marshal Teddy Daniels on his quest to solve a murder case in Shutter Island, a secluded place for the criminally insane. We guarantee that this movie (based on Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name) won’t let you down – both the story line and the acting make it worth the watch.

Blood Diamond (2006)

Blood Diamond once again introduces us to the gifted Leonardo DiCaprio, whose talent for acting makes movies magical. This movie seems to be criminally underrated and should have made over twice as much as it made in the box office. Unfortunately, it couldn’t really hold onto pop culture and isn’t really mentioned as often as the filmmakers would have hoped for. That’s not to say that the film isn’t worth watching, however – on the contrary, it’s going to leave you flabbergasted as you follow the journey of a quest for a rare stone in Africa and the perils that it brings with it. It made $171.4 million in the box office while its budget was $100 million, which means it couldn’t really break even. That’s quite the tragedy as this film has the potential to become a blockbuster. However, regardless of the fact that it didn’t do too well in the cinemas, we highly recommend that you buy this one and have a good old time with your friends as you follow this amazing adventure.

Even if you’re not the biggest movie fan on earth, you’ve got to admit that some movies aren’t for everyone and yet, they bring joy to others. Who knows, some of these movies might bring the same feeling to you which is why you should probably give them a try. You might end up discovering your favorite movie that not many people know about!
